We stayed there for just under a week as part of a coach party. We stopped half board. The buffet breakfasts had more than enough choice to keep both my wife happy. The evening meals were on a sort of Table d’hôte basis. All very nice with both of us generally clearing our plates. The hotel is about 6mins. walk from the funicular railway up to Montecatini-Alto. It is only a short walk into town centre. The town roadtrain has a stop not far from the hotel. The train station. Although just the other side of the town centre is handy for trips to Florence etc. The staff who I think were largely family were very helpful & friendly. Very few of our group spoke Italian but the staff spoke enough English for it not to be a problem. Both my wife & I enjoyed our stay. We will be looking for further coach tours that stop there.
My husband and I stayed in a Junior Suite, Half Board for 2 weeks. with the intention of eating out elsewhere on a couple of occasions. We did not eat out once as the food was delicious. The hotel was spotless and clean. The hotel is run by the extended Simonetini Family who were wonderful hosts. Every member of staff from the cleaner, reception and all the wonderful restaurant and bar staff could not do enough for us and were very friendly and welcoming. We also received some great recommendations from the staff as to where to cycle and spent 2 days cycling the coast at Viareggio, plus we cycled from Lucca to Pisa. We were so sad to leave which is always the sign of a good holiday.
A group of 34 of us spent an excellent week at this family run hotel. The welcome, from the porterage of our luggage on the first day, to the farewell on the last, exceeded expectations. We had booked this hotel over a year ago, based on a visit and good reviews and we were not disappointed. The meals were very good every day with a great choice of food, well served and plentiful. Some of the group would have appreciated tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms or at least a kettle. Lack of standard electricity sockets presented problems for a few but helpful staff supplied adaptors where necessary. Some single rooms were small in comparison to the very good twins and doubles; but these did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the holiday in this lovely hotel. The management were a great help with the organisation of tours, visits to galleries and getting good seats for a local "Taste of Puccini" opera concert . Altogether a great holiday in a well appointed hotel. We will be back next year with another Superb Choice Club holiday group.
The staff here are excellent and make you very welcome. Booked in on a coach trip for 7 days. The room was ok with a nice bathroom. Different electric plugs here, a 3 pin Italian variation. The hotel did have a couple of adapters to cater for guest that were caught out, but down in the town there was a 99cents shop where you could buy the adapter. A firm bed which gave us a reasonable sleep. The other fitmennts in the room were practible even if a little old. A safe was provided (free), and free wifi. The evening meal was good and varied (with a few choices) throughout the week. Again excellent staff in the dining room. The breakfast offering was ok but could have been better. It comprised of cereals, cold meats and cheese, cakes, scrambled eggs and eggs that you could boil yourself to your taste. Also croissant and cake. There was a nice outside pool. No kettle or tea making facilities in the room, so take your own kettle if you want to make tea in your room. There is a small TVs with one English Channel (BBC World news)
You know the cliche "It doesn't get any better than this" well that truly applies to this hotel. It is only classified as 3-star but the service and food are exceptional. It is a spotlessly clean family run hotel and it was truly a pleasure to stay there.
Just returned from two weeks holiday staying at this delightful family run hotel. The staff too are very welcoming, friendly and always willing to help. Location is perfect with only a 10 min walk to the centre of Monticatini and 20 min walk to the train station for Florence, Lucca, Viareggio etc. Dinner (5 courses) each evening is superb with plenty of choices. Rooms are spotless and comfortable with views overlooking the pool and gardens.
We have just completed 10 days at the Toretta. It is family run and really feels like it. Some of the staff are not family but I was never sure which!! The hotel is situated on the outskirts of town bit still only a leisurely 3 minute walk from the centre and a minute from the Montecatini Alto binocular. FOOD Breakfast is plentiful salami ham cheese and fruit with plentiful coffee tea hot chocolate etc. Dinner was a delight very much family style: mixed salad, hearty thick soups, pasta, main courses offered a choice of meat fish or vegetarian followed by home made desserts and coffee. ROOMS Were a reasonable size spotlessly clean and well equipped. Some had balconies overlooking the pool very pleasant. Nothing was top much trouble for the staff ordering tickets for trains and theatres oil and wine tasting and pasta making. Almost enjoyable time
We were greeted warmly and shown to our comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and across to the trees of Torretta Park. Every member of staff ensured we were well looked after and our room was cleaned spotlessly each day. The hotel is quiet - especially at night. With the shutters down and a/c on almost nothing is heard of the outside world - very peaceful. Situated a 5 minute walk from the funicular up to the old town, and a similar distance to the entrance to Torretta Park - worth seeing both the spa and walking around the parkland. 15-20 minute walk through town to the railway station and access to Pistoia & Florence to the east, Lucca & Pisa to the west. We hired a car to visit Vinci, home of Leonardo... Buffet breakfast sets you up for the day! Simple extra touch was that our table remained the same one throughout our stay. We were out all day so didn't have lunch there but did enjoy our evening dinners. All typical Tuscan food...no ketchup in sight!! Extra special touch was when the owner delivered a bottle of Prosecco to our room before dinner on my birthday?
Great hotel on just about every level. Potential visitors should note the the electric plug sockets are of an older (in-line 3-pin) version of the european plug. Our 'newer' 2-pin adaptors are not compatible. Fun when trying to keep a couple of iPads, phones, and a camera, charged. Not a demerit just an observation.
This is a lovely place to use as a base to explore Pisa, Firenze, Siena ..etc! The hotel is so welcoming and when we were there they helped us with our travel plans and gave us good advice as to the best way to see Tuscany. We had an evening meal at the hotel and this was probably one of the best meals we had during our visit. The hotel is ideally situated for the funicolare to Montacatini Alto,for exploring the town and the nearby sites. After all of our exploring it is was great to relax in the pool - after the initial shock of the cold water - even when the thermometer was pushing 37C! Thank you for a lovely stay, we were very well looked after by all of the family and staff of the hotel.
